Khalaasis We Encounter As Daily Local- Vehicle Travellers

Khalaasis are the entertainers of all the microbuses. From their devil-may-care attitude to the questionable fashion choices, they come as a package deal with every public transportation along with the driver.

That being said, here are a few namuna khalaasis that you see.

  1. 1 The Broken Radio


    These are the ones who would chant ‘Ratnapark, Ratnapark, Ratnapark’ until your ears start to bleed.

  2. 2 The Rishi Dhamala


    They will argue, fight and make a sure comment on each and every one of you until you reach your destination.

  3. 3 The Suitcase


    After getting 100 people in a 15-seater microbus, they will still say, ‘Aunuhos, seat khali chha’.

  4. 4 The Maze Runner


    This one will take you through Swayambhu on your way to Bhaktapur, just to avoid traffic. Good luck reaching home on time.

  5. 5 The Naagin


    They move with the wind, half torso stuck out of the window, screaming for you.

  6. 6 The CCTV


    He is going to make sure you spelt your name right on your ID and have updated your pic on your Facebook. #Toughlove

  7. 7 The DDLJ


    He will pull you in the micro like Raj pulled Simran in DDLJ, all theatrics included. Never let this microbus go. It’s a keeper!

  8. 8 The Beep-Beep


    This person needs to walk around with a censorship warning on his mouth. Period.

  9. 9 The Traffic Controller


    There’s always that one khalaasi who is better at untangling the paradox of Nepali traffic better than the policemen themselves. Can we have a round of applause, please?

    • You made me remember the days of kirtipur, एक इन्च ठाँउ हुदैन दाइ अलिक पर सर्नुस न। भन्छ कति कति बेला त उसैलाइ तनेर कोच्दिम जस्तो रिस जाग्थ्यो
